Benaud, Jean Arthur (?–1866)

Captain [Jean Arthur] Benaud, who for so many years has been so intimately connected with the maritime interests of this port, was thrown from his horse on the 1st instant, and received such severe injuries that he remained totally unconscious until the 3rd instant, when he expired. Captain Benaud was last in command of A. S. N. Co.'s steamer Samson, and was much respected by a large circle of friends, but a few months since he resigned, and has since resided on his property at the Manning River –Herald.
